This week we talk to (controversial) author, pastor and speaker Brian McLaren. His new book about Christian identity in a multi-faith world releases September 11 and you’ll definitely want to hear this conversation. Also, we take a behind-the-scenes look at the new issue of RELEVANT featuring politics, Lecrae, The xx and more. Jungle Bird resurfaces, and we break down some of the most overrated artists in modern music.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

What question would you like us to ask Jungle Bird?

Earlier this summer, our world (and Bob Costas‘) was rocked when Jungle Bird made an appearance in the closing moments of the US Open. After going rogue for a few months, Jungle Bird resurfaced last week during the ND / Navy football game when he scored a touchdown and followed it up with an Irish Jig. And now, thanks to the same engine that brought us John Tesh (Twitter), Jungle Bird has expressed interest in appearing on our podcast. Jesse, while incredibly excited, is also extremely nervous at the thought of interviewing one of his role models. So this week we need your help. If we are, in fact, able to land this interview, what question would you like us to ask him? And if you don’t have a specific question, let us know your suggestion for where Jungle Bird should appear next.
